Connecticut Residents Share Glowing Reviews of the Nutmeg State
I grew up in Brewster, NY which borders Western, CT and always loved living close to Danbury, CT.
When I moved to the Hat City as an adult, I adopted this as my home and embraced it fully. I work in the Greater Danbury area, all my friends are here, my family and all the activities I enjoy are in one place.
I decided this was my home and I was going to enjoy it for everything it is, and not concern myself too much with what it is not. Not everyone shares my positivity for Danbury and the Constitution State, particularly on social media. It's rare that you open an article or click a link with CT in the title that does not have a negative message.
CT has it's problems with high taxes, transportation infrastructure and a history of corrupt or inept politicians, but so do a lot of other places. I ask myself the same question all the time, do the pros outweigh the cons? For me, the pros in CT heavily outweigh the cons.
I love the four seasons, the landscape, the food, the art, the entertainment and the historic architecture in this state. These positive points allow me to tolerate the things I dislike because no place is perfect.
Because I am so sick of listening to people piss and moan about CT, I went to the "web" in search of others who do love it here and found these people in the most unlikely place, Reddit.

I could not avoid making room for that shot at Florida from "BronxBerner." My biggest pet peeve is people who live in CT, constantly complain about it, claim they have plans to move to Florida but never do. Just go already!
You can join your friends in the Sunshine State, pretending your quality of life has been improved while incessantly messaging friends back in the North to tell them what the temperature is.
If you are so busy having a good time in Florida, why are you constantly talking about New York, CT and New Jersey? Enjoy yourself and good luck getting a bacon, egg and cheese on a hard roll tough guy. Florida you say?
The comments I gathered are from the Connecticut Reddit page, I highly recommend it whether you want to complain or not, there is something for everyone.
I do have a sense of humor about the topic so I can appreciate when someone does a good job of taking shots at CT, this one is a good example.
As much as I love Joe Rogan, and I do, I don't think his CT hatred makes sense based on his many explanations.
